Posey could undergo season-ending hip surgery, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey has been battling the hip issues since late May, and at this point it seems to be a question of when, not if, he is to undergo surgery. The 31-year-old is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Mets, but is expected to return to the starting nine Wednesday as the Giants continue to evaluate every possible avenue for their franchise catcher.
Posey is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mets, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey will be rested for the second time in three games. Nick Hundley gets the start behind the plate.
Posey is not starting Sunday against Cincinnati, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey has brought his average up closer to his career level by hitting .333 over his last 17 games, but he has just five homers on the season and none since June 19. Nick Hundley will start behind the plate Sunday.
Posey is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey has six hits over the last two games but receives a breather for the series finale. The veteran catcher should return to the lineup Monday at Los Angeles, as Nick Hundley starts behind the plate Sunday.
Posey is starting at catcher and hitting second Monday against the Astros, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey is back behind the dish for the first time since taking a foul ball to the mask during Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks. He was cleared of any concussion symptoms and was able to return to action at first base Sunday, going 1-for-3 with a walk, so the veteran backstop should be safely deployed by fantasy owners heading into the week. The 31-year-old Posey is hitting .298/.372/.410 with five homers and three stolen bases across 92 games this season.
